American Idol Winner Injured In Car Accident

Posted on January 2, 2013

Car accidents are never fun, especially if they occur on New Year’s Day. Many people die in car accidents because they failed to take adequate precautions.

It wasn’t a very good start to the new year for Kris Allen.

The American Idol winner broke his arm after he, his pregnant wife and their dog were involved in a head-on car accident on New Year’s Day, according to his mother, Kimberly.

“From Kris: he’s in a lot of pain, arm broke, may not play guitar for a while. Prayers welcome please!” Kimberly Allen tweeted Tuesday, along with a picture of Allen with his right arm in a cast.

Later, she added, “Kristopher and Katy are both pretty beat up but ALIVE! Thank you Jesus! They are setting his arm now and will have surgery tomorrow.”

Allen himself took to Twitter to assure fans he was fine.

“Thank you @ford for equipping me with a car that kept my whole family @katyallen @ZorroPup and the little one we have on the way safe,” he wrote. (A Ford vehicle was part of Allen’s prize package when he won Idol in 2009.)

And despite his injury, Allen says he still plans to head out on the road later this month.

“Don’t worry everyone I may have broken my wrist but the #OutAliveTour is still on,” he tweeted.
